Vehicle of man missing in Punta Gorda since 1986 recovered in canal
Deep Creek, Fla. - Charlotte County workers have located a vehicle in a canal that belongs to a man reported missing more than 25 years ago.
On Thursday, Charlotte County workers located a 1982 white Chevrolet Corvette in a canal near the area of Rampart Blvd. and Navigator Road in the Deep Creek area of Punta Gorda. The tag number on the vehicle matched that of a vehicle reportedly driven by a man who was last seen in November 1986.
Major Crimes detectives have notified the next of kin of Terrance Beghin that his vehicle has been located. At this point, there is no evidence of Beghin himself in the vehicle.
Beghin was 26 years old when he was reported missing.
Major Crimes detectives and Crime Scene Technicians are still at the location which has been cordoned off while they continue their investigation.
